Terrible result to see this mindless ballbasher in R3 of a slam. Hopefully this fluke run stops at that point.

Re: USO R2 Benneteau beats Novikov 3-6 6-4 7-6 7-5

Novikov played a good match and he's an intriguing prospect. He has a big serve, hit a lot of forehand winners and took on any short balls that were given to him. He was also willing to come to net and hit some nice underspin forehand dropshots showing he's not just a ball-basher. Benneteau didn't play well especially in the beginning but raised his game whenever he got in trouble. Novikov was serving over 130mph which is impressive for a kid who is just about to turn 19 but he doesn't have a lot of variety and after the 1st set Benneteau was able to read it better.

Novikov is heavy for someone that tall, especially in the legs which gives him a good center of gravity. His fitness is an issue though and I think he will have to lose some weight if he is to survive a full year on the tour. There was a lot to like about Novikov's game but time will tell if he can play like that consistently or if this was just a good week for him.

I'm looking forward to seeing more from this young Novikov. Benneteau said he had nothing left for his next match, "doesn't know how he's going to do against Djokovic." and T-doc stop the trolling, I mean, Bennet a ballbasher.
